Man Utd hero Viv Anderson questions leadership inside current squad

Manchester United hero Viv Anderson has questioned the leadership inside the current squad.

While manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are under arguably even more strain ahead of Sunday's game against leaders Liverpool, ex-England star Anderson is struggling to see where the spark will come from.

He told The Sun: “The problem is it doesn't seem to me like the senior players have what we would do in their thinking.

“The likes of Nemanja Matic . . . he looks like he thinks he'll be leaving; Ashley Young probably thinks this is his last season at Old Trafford.

“There are not that many players who are going to be there for the long haul to keep the younger ones on their toes.

“The dressing room is really a young dressing room and you can't see many older heads being around for the next three or four years. And that's a problem."
